Whipped Chocolate Buttercream

I made a cake over the weekend, and I knew I wanted yellow cake and chocolate buttercream. This beauty happened because I didn’t have powdered sugar in my house and I was too lazy to go buy some and/or make my own. No judgment.

I’m sure you’ve seen the recipe floating around for 2 ingredient chocolate buttercream. Nothing but butter and chocolate.

So I threw this together and it turned out quite delightful. A little on the rich side for me, but if you’re a chocoholic this is right up your alley.

1lb Unsalted Butter
12oz Chocolate Chips

Heat the two together over a double boiler until you have a dreamy chocolate syrup. I transferred the liquid chocolate butter mixture to the bowl of my kitchenaid and put it in the freezer for about 25minutes.

Once it’s cooled and started to set start to whip it on high speed.

Whip it good.

I was pleasantly surprised at how well this whipped up. It was plenty to frost and fill a two layer 9″ cake.

Yum 🙂
